Summer Scholars

New Charlotte is partnering with Church at Charlotte and St. Stephen UMC to conduct a summer reading book fair at Greenway Park and Idlewild Elementary Schools. 


Here’s How You Can Help

  • Donate during the offering or online and we will purchase books for you.
  • Join us at Greenway Park (May 22) or Idlewild (May 23) and help students choose the 5 books they can take home with them.


The Power of Literacy

  • 96% of 3rd graders reading on grade level will graduate on time
  • On average, students lose 2 months of reading skills over the summer
  • The third grade literacy proficiency rate is currently at 39% across CMS


Through participating in our Summer Scholars project, we are investing in 3 of 5 evidence-based practices that move the needle in improving children’s literacy: 

  • Active Reading
  • Summer Reading
  • Including Families in the Process

By reading 5 books during the summer, students can add 1.5 months of additional growth

Upcoming Project

Serve CMS Day at Greenway Park

October 06, 2018

It’s become a tradition – New Charlotte spends the morning clearing out and planting flowers and plants that last the entire school year in 6 outdoor patios Greenway has connected to classrooms.  We bring the tools, we’re asking you to roll up your sleeves and make it look good!
